Premiering NEXT WEEK, “Stranger Things 4” is a season that’s heavily influenced by Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, with Robert Englund joining the cast and the brand new villain inspired by Englund’s greatest creation, Freddy Krueger. We expect many references and Easter Eggs throughout, and one of them has been spotted in a brand new image.
IGN just ran an extensive “Stranger Things 4” preview this afternoon, and included within the article are four new images from Season 4. One of them takes us into the 1980s video store that Steve and Robin are now working at, and seen behind Max and Dustin in the shot shared by IGN is a vintage Freddy Krueger standee, promoting the Elm Street movies on VHS!
Check out the images below and head over to IGN to learn more.
